U.S. stock index futures are pointing to a higher open on Wall Street Monday as investors react to the second rate cut by China's central bank in three months.
The People's Bank of China (PBOC) cut benchmark interest rates by 25 basis points to 5.35 percent on Saturday as deteriorating economic conditions forced the central bank to shorten the time gap between policy moves.
The rate cut came hours before the publication of official purchasing managers index (PMI) for February, which showed the country's manufacturing activity contracted for a second straight month. On Monday, however,HSBC's final PMI reading of China's manufacturing sector in February came in at 50.7 on Monday, higher than the flash reading of 50.1.
